Happy July! Summer is officially here in Pure Michigan! Since everyone has been out enjoying the warmer weather, we wanted to take a look back at some of our favorite photos from June. Below is a gallery of just some of the stunning photos that our Pure Michigan Facebook community shared with us last month. See more on the Pure Michigan Flickr page.

Sue Beth Balash shares her “Pure Michigan Moment,” a kayak trip in North Bar Lake near Empire, where she searched for the perfect blue so often depicted in her students’ classroom drawings of Michigan waters. If you are interested in trying kayaking out for yourself, check out our beginners guide to kayaking.
I stand next to my kayak with my feet firmly planted in the sand encircling North Bar Lake and for a fleeting moment, I think of my third-grade class.
I wonder why children always reach for the bluest markers, crayons or color pencils when they fill in the waters on their Michigan maps, because not a single drop of it looks blue.
